Home Buyers Survey in Raglan

RICS Level 2 Survey

Should we go for a RICS Level 2 Survey, RICS Level 3 Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Raglan and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a RICS Level 3 Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Raglan property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper RICS Level 2 Survey.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a RICS Level 3 Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Raglan property's general condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Raglan? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is not considered by property buyers. If you have only been to the house you are buying in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, these defects are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that deteriorated flashing had been a concern. What does a property surveyor check when the structure is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of chartered surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property may be exposed to roof maintenance problems. From trusses to collar beams, every part of the roof will be considered, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Raglan roofing specialist.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fixtures like flue/chimney maintenance. The Raglan local surveyor will not remove the external fittings and will not conduct any tests on the system. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.
